St. Ursula Academy 9th Annual Day of Caring
On, April 29, St. Ursula Academy, Grades 6-12, sent over 600 St. Ursula Academy students, faculty, staff, and parent volunteers to 35 local Toledo service agencies to volunteer their services and helping hands.
In the spirit of the Ursuline tradition, St. Ursula Academy students helped stock and organize shelves at Toledo food banks, prepared and planted gardens at Nightengales Harvest, and prepared and served food at the Cherry Street Mission. Additional students read stories and assisted at Queen of Apostles and Christ the King schools. Other agencies on the list included the Collingwood Arts Center, Discovery Academy, East Toledo Family Center, the Catholic Club, and the Metroparks of Toledo. St. Ursula students are living their motto: "I Will Serve."
This is the 9th year that St. Ursula Academy has participated in Day of Caring, demonstrating what a huge impact 600 students and adults can have on a community when everyone works together. The students enjoy their day of volunteering and gain satisfaction in a job well done. Principal, Nichole Flores states: "Day of Caring is an incredible opportunity to showcase the connection SUA has to the community. Having over 600 students and adults come together to SERVE in a collective capacity is truly an awesome experience that not only demonstrates our mission, but is contagious in the great feeling it provides. St. Ursula Academy has always maintained the conviction that to serve others is a fundamental part of our faith as well as an expression of our school community."
